The second debate between McCain and Obama ended in a friendly manner despite McCain calling Obama “That one”. McCain was friendlier towards Obama in this debate . But there were moments when he seemed to ignore Obama and wandered aimlessly around the stage. When McCain was answering the questions from Tom Brokaw, the NBC moderator and the audience, Obama sat and waited for his turn.
You can see Tom Brokaw surprised by McCain’s movements on the stage. At one point, Tom Brokaw told McCain not to block his path as he was questioning Obama.
The late-night shows, Jay Leno from NBC, Conan O’Brien from CBS, Saturday Night Live (Thursday Edition posted here) from NBC and Jon Stewart from the Daily Show teased him for wandering about the stage.
Jon Stewart added an audio track and implies McCain was wandering because he was searching for his dog “Puddles”.
